Hello Everyone...

We made it through the nasty cyclone Pam..wasn't as bad as predicted so all is I have to put my back yard back together as I pulled everything down and tucked it all away...better to be safe than sorry.

I have a card to share today for another client and this one is for a 90year old friend of hers....

All in pink with a hint of green in the coloured image just text..

MB butterfly...WOC flowers...a silk hand tied bow..and pearls..and beautiful freebie vintage rose papers..

A side opening card...[don't do those very often]..and decorated inside to match.

Laying down flat and showing the beautiful anglaise lace that I was given..

A box was also made for easy transportation, but not decorated..

Challenges to enter...
